    This book had be really excited, but in the end, it was a bit disappointing What Susan Lee Johnson did, she did well, but in small chunks Overall, I felt the book lacked cohesion, and though each chapter was fascinating, I didn t think the book was united enough to pull off a strong, single thesis Fascinating individual studies on ethnicity and gender just think about it, a culture almost entirely made up of men who does the laundy, the dishes, the cooking , so well worth the read, but do This book had be really excited, but in the end, it was a bit disappointing What Susan Lee Johnson did, she did well, but in small chunks Overall, I felt the book lacked cohesion, and though each chapter was fascinating, I didn t think the book was united enough to pull off a strong, single thesis Fascinating individual studies on ethnicity and gender just think about it, a culture almost entirely made u...

    THE best work on the gold rush, hands down Johnson tells the story of the overlooked souls who frequented the mines, especially the non Americans who migrated to the area She discusses entertainment and daily life in the Southern Mines, violence and competition there, and various ways the gold rush has been remembered Her discussions of gender and race are...
